Birchwood Cafe
Minneapolis MN

Good Real Food starts with Good Real People!

The Birchwood Cafe is a pioneer in the Twin Cities farm to table movement.

We are a community conscious neighborhood cafe that has called the Seward neighborhood home for 25 years. Through our strong relationships with our farmers, we specialize in sustainable, organic, and locally-grown ingredients to make our Good Real Food. Our menu highlights and celebrates the bounty throughout the different growing seasons.

This past year has challenged our industry and service model immensely. We are looking for candidates that are excited to be part of reenvisioning how to move forward and foster healthy relationships with both the food we serve and the culture we create as a team. We work in a collaborative environment that requires flexibility and accountability while providing opportunities for both personal and professional growth.

Birchwood Cafe is a woman-owned business. We believe that building a team of people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences enriches our community and makes us a better restaurant. Committed to attracting and retaining a diverse staff, Birchwood Cafe will honor your experiences, perspectives and unique identity. Together, our team strives to create and maintain a workplace environment that is inclusive, equitable and welcoming for all.

This is an hourly position and one that will allow for a healthy work + life balance. Wages are contingent upon performance and experience starting at $15 an hour. We believe that all employees deserve reliable, fair pay and that all roles are valued as integral parts of our greater whole.
